after reading totoros post i now have a ? difficult child is on trileptal 300mg a day. the psychiatrist says we have to go slow and we told him we aren't seeing anything. he kind of blew us off and our next appointment was made for 7 wks later. now we are going to a new place and still can't see a psychiatrist until april 13th. my ? is does it seem that 300mg is low? it seems to be 1/2 of what i have read about and all i have read says you don't need to take it slow like other BiPolar (BP) medications. the school is complaining that he is not bipolar cuz the medications aren't working with-his anger outbursts at school though we have seen a little bit of change at home. we accidently gave him a double dose the other night and he got up the next morning now problem. anyone have any feedback on the trileptal the can share with-me so i can gauge how we are doing with-it. i am so tempted to up the dose on my own to 2 pills in the morning instead of one.
